Manor Farm haven’t failed to score in a game since their opening home game in August and their man in form is defender Josh Ford, who’s scored in each of his last 3 games.

Cup distractions over, Farm will be hoping to keep igniting their season whilst Westbury will be looking to keep their early season fuse will and truly lit. Expect fireworks in this one!
